What is Shatter?
Known for its glass-like fragility, Shatter is one of the most popular cannabis extracts on the market. However, it can range regarding consistency, which depends on the varying amounts of cannabinoids. Shatters with a high THC content have a more sappy texture but shatter with higher THC-A levels are more brittle. What is the difference between THC and THC-A you ask? In its raw form, THC-A is too big of a molecule to fit into cannabinoid receptors and hence cause no intoxicating effects. THC molecules, on the other hand, fit perfectly into these receptors and cause the effects we associate with getting high. Decarboxylation or exposure to heat and light converts THC-A to THC.
What are Cannabis Extracts?
Cannabis extracts or concentrates reference various products that generally have higher THC levels or other cannabinoids. Distillation processes achieve these desired levels and leave little to none of the plant matter behind.
Sweet Gas Shatter | Cannabis Extracts
We don't know much about this strain but evergreen coloured buds are robust in nature and gummed with resinous THC. Notes of sweet pine make the nostrils flare and the taste is creamy with silky smoothness on the way down. The ash burns white with thick wafting smoke that carries fuel in its pungent wake. Sweet Gas brings a pleasantly mellow high that stimulates appetite but won't land you on the couch. It can however lead to a more sedative effect when used in abundance. We consider this strain to be AAAA!
